Four hundred years after his death, William Shakespeare remains the most widely read and performed playwright in the world. What makes him so admired? Some scholars believe that his writings still shape the way we see ourselves as human beings. At the Shakespeare Club we will read his plays and try to allow his magic to work in us.

The Club is aimed at anyone interested in Shakespeare: those who have already and enjoyed some of his plays as well as those who love to read aloud and for those who prefer to sit quietly and follow the text as it is performed.

The Club will be led by Dr Roan Quince (ex Head of English at King David School and Shakespeare expert).

The Club will meet every Saturday afternoon from 22 April 2017 during government school term, from 14:30 to 16:30 in the Music Room.

Phone Cindy on 011 484 1584 to enroll.

Learners - if you are not sure whether to join to the Club - you are welcome to come to the first meeting and check whether it's for you.




National Children's Theatre in conjuction with Intergrated Expressive Arts will offer a new Saturday morning workshop starting on 22 April 2017. We have had several enquiries for a course of this nature and have now found a teacher with the right skills.

The teacher from Intergrated Expressive Arts is Amy de Wet who has a BA (PVA) Honours Dramatic Arts. Amy has further local and overseas qualifications and experience.

The classes will use the elements of drama to help children to investigate and experience:

* Social intergration skills

* Self-expression (free emotional expression and appropriate emotional expression)

*    A building of self-confidence and positive self-esteem

*    A flow of imagination

*    Creative thinking

*    Communicating with the world

Of course, whether the course runs depends on whether sufficient children are enrolled.

Please let us know if you are interested. Phone the theatre on 011 484 1584 and speak to Cindy or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
